Here's something cool - a new handheld synth and sequencer, on Kickstarter now, that has smashed through its funding target. Priced at just 97 Euros, it's certainly a tempting proposition.With four voices, a sequencer and MIDI, audio and CV in and out it certainly packs a lot into its compact frame. Here's what its creator, Oliver Wittchow, had to say about it.
"After years of existence as cartridge for portable game consoles and smartphone app, nanoloop finally makes it into a dedicated hardware. Combining the casual game pad interface with beautiful LED dots and digits, this device forms the ideal platform for the proven nanoloop software and its iconic 4x4 matrix sequencer.
While the first version of nanoloop (still available as “nanoloop one”) relies on the Game Boy’s internal tone generators, subsequent variations have their very own sound:
Nanoloop two implements an FM-based software synthesizer on the Game Boy Advance’s 16 MHz CPU and the latest version nanoloop mono embeds a complete synth with true analog filters inside the cartridge.
The new nanoloop device merges these two approaches and combines FM with analog for maximum flexibility."
Price: 97 Eur
